    I already have the print subscription, any deals to add the digital so I can have it on my iPad too?

    • Debra Cleghorn says:

      As of now, these are two separate subscriptions. We’d like to see an all-inclusive digital AND print subscription option in the future.

    I already have the print subscription, any deals on adding the digital to my print so i can have it on my iPad as well?

  6. Tommy says:

    How about subscribers to the paper addition? Do we get the app for free too?

    • Debra Cleghorn says:

      The app is free for anyone to download. You will need to buy a digital issue or subscription to access the digital issues.

  7. Steve Roberts says:

    Looking at the feedback on iTunes, it seems that the app is not working, or there is some glitch with the subscription process. I was going to renew the print edition before I saw this. I would prefer to read on the iPad. Can you confirm that this indeed works as advertised?

    • Debra Cleghorn says:

      Any glitches are with current digital subscribers accessing their issues via the app. This is being addresses and should be fixed this week. I started a new digital subscription via the app and it worked just fine. (Bought it via the app and iTunes.) Hope this helps.

  8. Tim Belongia says:

    I have been getting this digitally for a couple years. Is it possible for me to read this in the new app? If so, how do I go about it?

  9. Ron Davis says:

    Please explain to my why I would want to read the latest issue of Model Airplane News on the little bitty screen of my IPhone when I have a subscription and can read a full size manazine?

  10. Danny Busch says:

    I have been waiting for this app for a while now.
    It looks nice, but like some other magazine apps I was expecting the app to download the magazine so I can read it offline.
    It doesn’t.
    That unfortunately makes the app unusable for me as it is now.

  14. Ignacio Sanchidrian says:

    I am a subscriber of the printed edition. I understand as discrimination to have less contents than digital readers. I want the hard copy but I am willing to pay a bit more to access the digital bersion, but not double. Any proposal?

  15. Hsg says:

    Will you publish an android app?

  16. Dave says:

    The app still isnt working. I cant sign in, keeps saying account not found. This is a week of this nonsense now.
    Charged my credit card pretty quick though!

    • Debra Cleghorn says:

      thanks for your feedback. I have forwarded your comment and email address to our IT folks who will help you first thing Monday!

  17. Tony says:

    The app does not work well. I cannot find 3 of the 6 issues I purchased. The app is very slow and crashes easily. There is only one zoom level available. The downloads go page by page instead of downloading the entire issue at once. overall, a poor user experience. I hope it gets a major update soon.

    • Debra Cleghorn says:

      Thanks for your feedback. I have forwarded your comment and email to our IT team who will help you first thing Monday.

    App works great now …. Thanks

  19. Shawn Swerdfeger says:

    Any word on an android app??

  20. david says:

    When you come up with the android version can you please put a little more info in the announcement on how and where to obtain it other than a note on the cover. Maybe something about how to get it for those who already subscribe. I have an I-touch and it seemed to me that I had to subscribe to the magazine again to get the deal. I will never-ever want only the digital edition. The day you go 100% digital and no mailings with a printed edition, I will stop my subscription flat-out.

  21. Cesar Forli says:

    What happened to App on Apple store? I can’t find it anymore and I’m no able to read digital magazines in my iPad… I’ve just subscribed digital edition and just got 3 issues. Pls, help!
